which techology company has highest number of woman managers

technology companies and women managers

Tech brands with the highest number of woman managers  

Pinterest, Linked, Yahoo are the top tech companies with the higher number of women managers with 40,39 and 37% respectively 
While there is no evidence or research to show that productivity or efficiency is gender dependent nor any study to show why companies needs to hire more woman than men or vice versa.  So what makes them so attractive to tom tom !! For these global technology giants gender diversity is a big statement in itself .It makes them sound very politically correct and helps them to don the leadership role in the tech industry by trying to showcase gender diversity. This is a great way to hire new woman recruits who are at times seen not as ambitious or career driven as men... What is left unsaid is the role of economics in gender diversity . Do compensation levels play a role in gender divide ?

The Decades best and worst Returns from large Corporations


This chart published at the Economist shows the best and worst returns from Corporations for the last decade. Ten years ago a share in Apple would have set you back $12.50. Yesterday, thanks partly to recent news of record profits for the final quarter of 2011, the technology giant’s share price rose above $500 for the first time. A hundred dollars invested in Apple in February 2002, around the time it unveiled its redesigned iMac, would have swelled to almost $4,000 today. The same investment in Sberbank, Russia’s biggest state-owned bank, would now be worth more than $3,700. The decade has not been so kind to a number of Western banks. Stakes of $100 in Allied Irish Banks and AIG would be worth $1.33 and $2.21 respectively. Because this chart looks at the 200 biggest existing companies that also existed in 2002, it necessarily ignores both new and recently bankrupt firms.

$100 Billion Facebook IPO Coming Soon ;

Facebook is preparing itself for an IPO that could easily top $100 billion, according to a new report.. Company’s IPO is expected to hit next year with a valuation of around $100 billion. At $100 billion, Facebook’s impending IPO would be one of the largest in history, quadrupling Google’s $23 billion IPO in 2004. (Source Image Namesake.com)

CNBC says the social networking giant is likely to go public during the first quarter of 2012, less than nine months from now. That falls in line with a May 2012 deadline when Facebook will be required to publicly report its financial information, regardless of whether it’s a private or public company.

The $100 billion valuation isn’t a surprise — there were reports last month that Facebook’s IPO could easily top $100 billion, thanks to huge consumer and investor appeal. In fact, if LinkedIn’s stellar IPO is any indication, Facebook’s valuation could hit the stratosphere the day it hits the public markets.
Goldman Sachs is in the driver’s seat to underwrite the IPO, thanks to its $450 million investment in Facebook earlier this year. Facebook and Goldman might want to hurry, though: The social network’s growth is apparently slowing down.
